For example 7, 8, 9, 15, 18, 20. When I shoot that kind of subjects I do think: Why did I make this picture?
When I see yours I think: that's a nice shot....


I'm glad you enjoy them, but I'm not sure there is much in common that I could hang any advice on. However, I totally understand what you mean, I feel it about so many shots I see.

Not much chatter here recently! I've not been inspired the past few days as the long month draws to a close. I'm pleased to have maintained my pic-a-day aspiration though I've not had many keepers.

Day 21
Harm vb : That's a good looking ice, nicely separated from the background.
fennetje : Cool pattern
mikey2000 : A locomotive hauling a multiple unit set is unusual, possibly a failure being rescued.

Day 22
nadk : Well presented bloom.
pegelli : I'm enjoying your historic remains.
Fred_S : Circles within circles, well spotted.
onsplekkie : Poor pooch hasn't got much room, hope they're not going far.
mikey2000 : Nice composition.

Day 23
Jozioau : Ypo're getting some impressive detail out of that mirror lens.
Harm vb : The animal peeping over the top makes this shot.
AsD : Very topical!
Phil Wood : That's a hardy tree with its twists and sparse branches telling of its struggles against the wind, emphasised by the blank space and wispy clouds.

Day 24
Fred_S : Intriguing study in blue. No sense of scale but I'm guessing it's your bike belt drive. If so, then it's impressively clean.
pegelli : Soothing pastel browns.
AsD : Defunct infrastructure in the process of nature's reclamation, I love this kind of scene.

day 12: this is really nice, soft colors and sharp lines, very pleasing to the eye.
day 15: nice industrial/rural combination. I like that contrast a lot.

Thanks Sven!

That's exactly what I thought

@Fred_S - quite a statement juxtaposing the carbon pollution of the old plant against the green energy of the wind generator. Interesting effects in the misty grasses and the cloudy sky.


Day 19:
@Fred_S - desperate times call for desperate measures, and you've created something magic out of nothing. Great shot.

Thanks Joe!

Agree Alan! My comments are lagging behind, and am happy that April is almost over now!

Thanks Alan! It looks like I completely fooled you with the scale of my abstract of Day 24. Would you believe it of I told you that it is part of a roof?

More outtake commenting

Page 4
Harm vb, nice textures in such an old wall
Jozioau, splendid fall colours, even though it feels a bit strange for us here on the northern hemisphere
C_N_RED_AGAIN, what a nice animal and the composition next to the kid's leg works well. Only he seems to have received too much skin at birth
C_N_RED_AGAIN, well tempered sunrise (or sunset?)
Jozioau, never heard of the term MAMIL, so thanks for increasing my urban dictionary
alpha_in_exile, nice and diverse series of your park walk
Jozioau, quite harsh contrast but it makes the splashing water really sparkle
fennetje, bokeh is really a matter of taste, I also like this version but I agree the main shot trumps it
Jozioau, nice view but a bit more sunlight would have given it more punch
Harm vb, a clear case where a two shot pano would have avoided the cut-off of two fronts.


Page 5
Harm vb, is that your workshop or a workshop? I used to have an old 1965 Volvo and I could have used something like this very well.
Jozioau, the re-bar shot is really nice!
rovhazman, prosit, nice bokeh with that lens
Jozioau, what a strange bird, but well captured
rovhazman, the blessings of a warm climate, when we lived in Houston we once had a swarm of cockroaches like this which was quite unpleasant
Harm vb, nice macro effort and looks quite tasty
fennetje, great dog, we have one like that two houses further down the street and it's such a kind giant and yours does look very similar
Harm vb, I used to live in Oostvoorne until 1993 but I don't think this building was there yet. And then I worked in a plant that probably is now a big taker of your graduates
Jozioau, I like the tele compression in these shots and the human element in the second is really the icing on the cake

You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

I'll pick just a few days to comment on.

Day 18
@ Jozioau: Nice to see the autumn colors form down under, where we are in spring. Nice work with the AF500 Reflex.
@fennetje: Lovely soft atmosphere in this blossom shot
@alanfrombangor: Interesting textusrs in this facade
@ Harm vb: Good use of DOF. Sounds like you had a good day.
@ pegelli: Beautiful macro with nice bokeh.
@ C_N_RED_AGAIN: Good shot with just the motion in the props

Day 19:
@ Gregja: Good abstract architecture shot
@ addy landzaat: The subject looks familiar
@ onsplekkie: The BW conversion works well for this blossoom
@ Harm vb: The machine did it's work! (had one too, but struggled to get the dough hooks out )
@ rovhazman: Nice landscape. I use my SOny 50/1.4 far to little, but it's a great lens.
@ fennettje: lovely boheh!
@ AsD: Makes me wonder what's at the other end of the tunnel
@ Phill Wood: Nice structures. How does it look in colour?
@ mikey2000: I hope the rabbit is safe


Day 21:
@ Jozioau: Duck gymnastics?
@ Robbie: Depressing bunker (with a depressing history, but well captured.
@ alanfrombangor: tyoical pinhole shot. I have considered to buy this lens as a cheap option for Day 60, and although I like the way you use it, it's probably not my thing.
@ addy landzaat: catching dust?
@ alpha_in_exile: I don't like snow in April either

Agree on both remarks.

That is the workshop of Chateau Deux Chevaux, a 2CV repair shop, in Beesd.

Self made mustard...

This building is in Brielle. I lived in Oostvoorne as well: november 1964 till december 1965. Quite long ago

Thnxs Fred.

We have had a jolly good day. Took our own coffee and bread with us.

Yeah, that bread. Every time happy that it still works, with the hooks getting stickier every time.

Rather oddly green - but there's only one way to really answer that question
